How to zoom into work area like in old versions
« on: August 11, 2014, 01:59:25 AM »

i had been using an old version in a friends workshop (v2) and in there i could switch between viewing the whole table and just the Gcode workarea by using the display mode button.

I just purchased the latest version of Mach3 and cannot find a preference or setting or similar function to do this. Zooming in with themouse wheel is very impractical and i sure would like to have this 'old' feature back.

what am i missing ?

You can do one of two things, first is after you press the Display button you can then press Regen.
The second is you can have the button do the regen  for you, to do that all you need to do is go to Operator menu then Edit Button Scripts.
You will see the Display button flashing, click it and the editor will open, if you place the following after the code and then click File and Save, it should work as you want.

The code to add is

So the full code in the button should be like below.

value = GetParam("Boundry")
If  value = 1 Then
SetButtonText " Job "
SetParam "Boundry" , 0
SetParam "Boundry" , 1
SetButtonText "Machine"
End If
